LAST TIME OUT
On the shoulders of freshman guard Jazmine Perkins and senior forward Heather Molzen, the Cougars won their first game of December, knocking off Long Beach State 68-50 Friday night at Friel Court.
Perkins led all scorers with 16 points, her fifth double-digit outing in six games this season. She also recorded a game-high seven assists and tied for the team lead with four steals. Both marks were career highs.
Molzen recorded the second double-double of her career, scoring 14 points and pulling down a game- and season-high 11 rebounds. The double-double was the first by a Cougar this season.
Perkins and senior guard Katie Appleton sparked the WSU offense, combining for each of WSU's first 15 points. The outburst put WSU ahead 15-4 only three minutes into the game, a lead the Cougars wouldn't relinquish. Following the run WSU never led by fewer than seven points and built as much as a 21-point lead.
Sunday's game will mark the first meeting between WSU and Milwaukee.
